In the mornings I read from Sarah Young’s devotional Calling Jesus. It really spoke to me this morning as I know today’s labors are going to be intense as I work to clean the damages of these intense spring rains in my flooded basement. It reminds you to turn your focus to Him first before dealing with the demands of the day. “Bring Him the sacrifice of your time. This creates a sacred space around you permeated with His Presence and Peace.” Jesus Calling, May 30
The Psalms also have many uplifting verses to help with you when you think no strength is left.
Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which can not be shaken but endures forever. Psalm 125:1
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth and it endures. Psalm 119:90
For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the sky. Psalm 108:4
So even when life seems to be drowning you, remember His hand is always reaching down to you, so reach up and grab it.
In my reading this morning I also read a verse that goes along with how I always close…
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16.
Some many think only of sharing physical items but sharing of your time when others are in a desperate need is critical. A simple smile and gentle hug can share the warmth of Christ to provide endurance to finish a hard task. So remember to share of you, which shares of Him, and be always be kind.
